Meal donations still needed at Sally Ann

The Salvation Army needs donations to feed 300 guests a Christmas meal.

The Salvation Army will need more turkeys.

The Salvation Army needs donations to feed 300 guests a Christmas meal.

The Salvation Army Caring Place will be hosting its annual Christmas dinner on Dec. 19 at 5 p.m.

“The meal is not only a great way to share in food and fellowship, but it is also a warm, lively environment for vulnerable individuals in our community to feel loved during the holiday season,” said Amelia Norrie, public relations coordinator.

All are welcome at this meal, from all parts of the community, and Santa Claus will also be making an appearance.

The Caring Place relies on donations from local grocers and residents to supply the special supper.

With the dinner just days away, it is coming down to the wire to collect donations.

Although the local grocery stores have been generous in their support for the turkey dinner, it’s looking like donations, for turkeys specifically, are coming up short.

If The Salvation Army doesn’t receive enough donations for the Christmas meal, they will have to buy some additional turkeys to supplement the demand on Dec. 19.

Norrie said using funds to buy meal items is money that will directly affect the bottom line, and The Caring Place’s ability to provide other services year-round.

Anyone interested in helping with the Christmas meal, either by donating turkeys, meal items or gift cards, please contact Rob Field at 604-463-8296, extension 123 or chef@caringplace.ca.

• For those interested in attending, all are welcome – but if you are attending with children, please advise Connie at 604-463-8296 local 112.
